In my opinion, Hawley is guilty of sedition, publicly raising his fist in support of the rioters. Remember, 5 people lost their lives. Censure does not remove him from office, he retains his title, stature, and power to vote. He is an embarrasment to the people of Missouri and he must be removed.

He knows there was no fraud. He's just using the situation to ingratiate himself to trump's base. He helped pour fuel on that fire.

Absolutely! This Missouri resident is embarrassed by his non-representation of a majority of his fellow Missourians.

I believe he acted without consideration of common good, and acted in what he thought might increase his position for future political opportunities. Might have back fired. He should be censured by Congress.

He did encourage rioters. And he should be disciplined.

He knows there was no voter fraud. He knows Trump was lying and he backed it. He tried to take away our democracy and replace it with a dictatorship. I think Gobbels was a great comparison to Hawleys behavior in this attempted government coupe.

The courts decided there was no election fraud and he knows this. He is not upholding his oath to support the Constitution.

He is now a trumplican and not a true Republican. He says he was speaking for the millions I think that's just what the election and all the recounts did. Your just a trumppet a puppet for the slime ball trump!

And because he used the riots for a fund raising event, even while the capital was under siege.

It is absolutely his right to question the results an election with so many obvious irregularities - just doing the job he was elected to do!!!

So the same ones who complain about overturning an election - now want to - because he's got the haters scared.

Asking to look at the election did not incite violence. 4 yeats of leftist lies did.

People will remember, that it costs way too much to go to the store, to buy overpriced food, and not having enough money to pay for it. Hamburger helper without hamburger, is already real for many families. And it is going to get much worse, thanks to Joe Biden. LGB

The Dems are just acting like sore losers right now. You can bet that they would change their tune when they're back in the minority and couldn't use the filibuster themselves.

It would be pretty dumb for the dems to do that. It will be their only protection after mid terms. But I hope they do. I will laugh my, well you know the rest.

Don't laugh off too many body parts. The gluteus maximus muscle group is important to allow the body to roll around on the floor while laughing hysterically at FJB's flailing policy failures, left's reactions to SCOTUS rulings, etc. Buy popcorn now before Bidenflation makes it too expensive. FJB

The major policy swings to left and right, with presidents using executive orders on their first day in office to cancel the previous president's policies, is really bad for this country. Getting rid of filibuster will make this worse. We need policies the vast majority agree on, especially energy.

Those stupid mfers don't realize it'll end up being used against them when they lose power. Plus, just because you can't ram through everything you want, doesn't mean you get to change the rules whenever you want. Abolish the SCOTUS, end the filibuster...who's really threatening democracy here?

They changed them for judges. Giving Trump tons of judges confirmed. Did they learn nothing from that mistake? The rules exist fir a reason. Dems won't always be in power. Beware of unintended consequences.

Trump judges are doing a great job: overturning RvW, cutting the legs out from under the EPA, allowing people to have guns. Even 9th circus court said no gun discrimination against 18 year olds. Dems can't rely on legislating their unpopular agenda from the bench anymore, which is really good. FJB
